Villain Quotations

I like not fair terms and a villain's mind.
William Shakespeare

In any story, the villain is the catalyst. The hero's not a person who will bend the rules or show the cracks in his armor. He's one-dimensional intentionally, but the villain is the person who owns up to what he is and stands by it.
Marilyn Manson

An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards.
John Locke

I played characters with villainous aspect. But out-and-out villain? No.
Clint Eastwood

I'm not a role model. I'm a role villain.
Marilyn Manson
